8:02 am
take a look at this picture -- this is from the cover of the upcoming new york magazine. it takes the breath away. you can just see half of the island in the darkness. >> like a tale of two cities. it's hard to believe that it's one week ago tomorrow where sandy hit. coming up, the emotional story of the high school football star whose biggest play, the touchdown he intentionally did not make with the full support of his coach and teammate. but, we're going to start here with insult to injury. for millions of people who still don't have heat, power or water after sandy, it's now dangerously cold and there's a big, new storm brewing. abc meteorologist ginger zee has been on this story from the jump. she's got the latest. ginger, good morning to you. >> this wouldn't be a huge issue if we didn't have so many people still without power. look at the temperatures.
8:03 am
charleston, west virginia, is in cold, but everybody else in the 30s. new york city, 39. the outskirts outside of the city even colder, closer to freezing. the windchills this morning are right there with you. i would love to tell you that it's getting warmer, but as people getting power back, stay in the 30s not only for nyc but atlantic city. false to freezing by early tuesday. we have to talk about this storm, of course, you got that jet stream holding on to that cold air. it's going to grab some moisture down in the southeast and that's where it picks up the pace and it starts to form the nor'easter. rain showers from the carolinas tuesday down into florida. for wednesday, it starts to move north. that's when the winds pick up in the northeast. 50-mile-an-hour winds. and then by thursday, it really mixing with some cold air. coastal new england gets the rain. back here in upstate new york. poconos getting into some of the snow. so, how much and what to expect? here it is, one to three inches of rain. six to 12-foot waves. and, of course, that inland snow. we'll have much more coming up.
8:04 am

8:06 am
campaign, that this election is about who can fix the economy. >> i can't wait to get started. he's hoping we'll settle. americans don't settle. we aspire. we listen to the voices inside that say we can do better. >> reporter: there will be several stops today for mitt romney here in cleveland, ohio, then a rare appearance in pennsylvania. i asked if this was stop in the pennsylvania was an effort to expand the map given president obama's slim lead in some of the key battleground states. they said no, they're going there because they see the same support. they hope to capitalize. they're hoping that this will be one of those surprise states come election day. dan and bianna. >> david, thank you. this race could come down to ohio. which is why, jon stewart has joked, that the candidates are treating it like the precious from the lord of the rings. take a look at the numbers. romney has been to ohio 67 times. the president has made 20 visits, spending almost $64
8:07 am
million. the president will be back there today, though he's waking up in new hampshire, where we find abc's jake tapper. >> reporter: good morning, dan. that's right, ohio is the rosetta stone of this election. president obama will be back in the state tomorrow. truly any one of these battleground states could be pivotal because the race is tied and so, so close. including here in tiny new hampshire. the latest poll has it tied here as well. wracking up roughly 1500 miles yesterday alone on the air force one frequent flier program, ohio, wisconsin, iowa, virginia, president obama is jetting from battleground to battleground. his pitch to undecided voters -- i'm the same idealistic nonpartisan guy that you voted for last year. >> the fights were fighting they're not partisan. i want to work together. i believe we're all americans first, not democrats or republicans first. >> reporter: he believes that romney represents failed
8:08 am
policies of the past and not trust-worthy, not what he seems. and he makes a push for voters, while acknowledging disappointment to go with the devil they know. >> you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. some times you may be frustrated with the change. but you know where i stand. >> reporter: stars, the hollywood kind, are aligning for the president. doing what they can to help generate excitement. >> i'll do anything to get you to vote. i'll punch myself in the face. i don't care. >> reporter: katy perry in milwaukee helped bring a crowd of 20,000. john mellencamp in dubuque 5,000. and last night in virginia, 1 dave matthews joined with former president bill clinton. >> i want to vote for a president who's been a good commander in chief. and a good decider in chief. >> reporter: are they breaking through? are they hearing the message? >> i wish they would turn this mike up.
8:09 am
>> reporter: the obama campaign talks up its get out the vote effort. its ground game years in the making, including bianna, 1.7 million new voter registrations. that's twice as many as they accomplished in 2008. we'll see tuesday night if it ended up having that effect. bianna? >> all right, jake, thank you. and president obama paid a surprise visit to fema headquarters stressing the importance of the relief effort. supplies are still scarce, lines long and patience thin. the dire situation's not expected to get much better for a few more days. abc's alex perez has been following an emergency shipment of gas from the tankers to the pumps to the gas tank and is in new jersey with that story. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. even at this hour, take a look behind me, that's a line of cars waiting for gas. many of those people have been waiting overnight. that line stretches for several blocks. but the good news is, the pain could begin to ease very soon.
8:10 am
this morning, some of the much-needed gasoline slowly trickling in. fema workers are coordinating free gasoline at ten sites across the garden state. like this one in freehold, new jersey. >> i saw the trucks. >> reporter: across the region, there are areas where help hasn't arrived. near hackensack, new jersey, melissa and her boyfriend tim, are standing in yet another line, hoping to get gas for their generator. >> people are just -- they're losing their patience. >> reporter: it's the same feelings that many have endured for nearly a week now. lining up on foot and in cars for hours on end just to get a gallon of gas. >> you kind of feel like you're in a war zone with the destruction around you. >> reporter: but help is on the way. 22 million gallons of gasoline that the feds promised. after an hour of waiting outside in the cold, tim and melissa are finally about to get some gas. but their journey is not over yet.
8:11 am
they still have to make the trek home by foot. >> we got the gasoline, head back to the car. we'll wait in another line to get some diesel. >> reporter: after a 20-minute walk, tim and melissa make it home and finally fill their generator, for the first time in six days, they have power, heat and a warm meal. >> thank you very much. >> thank you, thank you. >> reporter: and tim and melissa say they'll have to continue their routine of standing in line for gasoline until they're able to get the power back on. this is the station where they filled up. the owner here at this station, they are completely tapped out. dan? >> alex, thank you. >> gas is just one part of the recovery, power is starting to come back and the subways are mostly running again. the same cannot be said, though, for the new york city marathon, the largest in the world canceled at the last minute due to controversy. some runners, however, are making good use of this day. and abc's john schriffen has
8:12 am
more on that. >> reporter: good morning, dan. instead of thousands of runners making their way to the starting line in staten island, later today, many will be coming right here to staten island ferry to gather donations. there's a lot going on here in downtown manhattan. right undermy feet, 5,000 gallons of water being pumped out of a subway station every minute to get it back up and running. we have signs of normalcy popping up, but there's still a lot of work to be done. flying high above the tristate, abc news got an exclusive close look at the coast guard cleanup efforts. the canal that separates new jersey from staten island where 350,000 gallons of fuel spilled over as a result of the superstorm. >> i think we're starting to win as far as the response. >> reporter: and this morning, a welcome sight, the crane that dangled so precariously, above new york city's highest residential building, is now safely tethered to the
8:13 am
side of the building. >> if everything goes according to plan, we hope to reopen west 57th street to traffic. >> reporter: a small sign that conditions in new york are looking up. coming out of the darkness and quiet, excitement to have the light and sounds of normalcy. as more subways begin to run. >> i have been in the house every day with the baby. i'm excited to go back to work. >> reporter: and grocery stores reopened. but as manhattan begins to recover, much of the region is still suffering. now, adjusting to a new normal in the wake of sandy's aftermath getting all of the help they can get to begin a long road to recovery. and the organization in charge of the new york city marathon has decided to donate all of the food and supplies from the race to people in need. another great concern in our area, the election's coming up on
8:14 am
tuesday, well, new jersey has decided that anyone affected by the storm in their state will be able to vote by either fax or by e-mail. >> that's right, john, sandy putting campaigning on hold for a few months. what impact could the hurricane have on tuesday's vote? let's bring in the host of "this week," george stephanopoulos, for more analysis. a exciting last two days here. but the president seemed to gain some momentum in sandy's wake. but polls are showing that romney is gaining popularity. who has the upper hand right now? >> and our latest poll shows an absolutely dead-heat. 48-48. couldn't be closer. with that said, the president has been maintaining a lead in those battlegrounds. but you talked about hurricane sandy, president obama was with governor christie, but you had karl rove, president george w. bush's strategist
8:15 am
saying that helped president obama over the last several days. they believe it blocked mitt romney's momentum and help burn ish his bipartisan credentials. >> anything they can do to move the needle in any way? or is the die cast? >> it's pretty much cast, with this one exception. they have to build excitement among their voters in these last 48 hours. it's all about turnouts. that's why they're going back to those states, ohio, iowa and wisconsin. he's going with bruce springsteen in the final 48 hours. it's just about building excitement. you see governor romney there, he has been getting some pretty big crowds in florida and virginia. >> when do you think we'll know? i mean, is it going to be a late, late night tuesday? >> no question it's going to be a late night tuesday. some question whether or not we'll even know wednesday morning. i think we're going to know. i think it's going to be clear enough, even though it's shaping up to be the closest presidential race in history. >> both, yesterday,
8:16 am
talking about how they have the historic power getting people out to vote, any evidence about how who has a stronger ground game? >> both candidates have strong ground games. these early vote totals more than 70% of the votes are in the states of colorado and nevada. almost 40% in the state of iowa have voted right now. the president has been working at this for more than two years. governor romney modeling his ground game on the successful of george w. bush's ground game. both sides have invested a lot and have gotten it oa lot of it. >> secretary of state in ohio said that they view the candidates as house guests as they're eager to see leave. later this morning, george stephanopoulos will be hosting the final edition of "this week" before the election. and on tuesday night, george, diane sawyer and the entire abc news political team will be at our election headquarters in times square all night long, it could be a long night as results come in. >> you can feel the excitement leading up to tuesday.
